I did try to check dramabeans’s episode 7 recap

 

Someone else already answered your question but at least I can suggest that next time you might check DramaMilk.  Their recaps are often live, and they are very speedy.  Dramabeans sometimes takes much longer to recap.

Hey guys, long time lurker and first time poster here

 

This is only the 5th K-drama I've watched but so far it is the most thought provoking I've seen. I love how intelligently crafted this drama is. The subtlety is amazing. Being a big fan of the arts and literature, this drama really speaks to me.

 

I have so many thoughts and theories but don't have the willpower to type it right now lol. All I can say is episode 8 was AMAZING. What a great mid-series finale (can't believe we are halfway through :bawling:) I just hope the story and characterization will remain consistent until the end.

 

Back to episode 8, I love how the ending showed all the couples and potential couples who came together during NYE. And I love how CSH and JH just threw caution to the wind and decided to kiss in the veranda, very Romeo and Juliet (minus the tragic ending, I hope). Something tells me they will be caught again, seeing as kissing is public might not be the brightest idea but they're so in love so what can we do lol. I do hope though that there's an alternative scenario to this. I don't want a time jump as well, I'm curious to see how they'll handle seeing each other again at the masquerade ball.

 

Speaking of masquerade, I love how it was a masquerade themed party. Their masks fit each characters personality for the most part.

Am loving this sweet drama so far!

 

I know it's a little early to be looking to the end, but something ridiculous has been nagging at me...I usually watch k-dramas for the cliche happy endings.  I noticed that sometimes, this drama is tagged as a "melodrama" which implies a sad storyline/ending in my mind. 

 

So now I'm freaking out a little, thinking I am so invested in this and it's just going to shatter my heart into little pieces in the end if the main couple do not end up together!  

 

So random question - does anyone know how often Korean "melodramas" have a "happy" ending?  Just trying to alleviate my anxious heart over this, haha.

Oh my g in the next episode Jinhyuk will be missing?

 

So, i noticed in ep 9 preview, 

when Jin Myung call Jin Hyuk, he still wearing the same suit from the party, will there any emergency with their mom? While Jinhyuk were with Sohyun perhaps? 

I guess in the next episode, JH parents will find out that he's dating CEO. Will be interesting to see how this loving family get thru this conflict.

Also, Sohyun is packing.. where will she go?

Aahhh so many questions, lets just binge watch 8 episode till next year :sweatingbullets:

  Reveal hidden contents

@dukesa1122 your post cracks me up...! That would really be an awkward night...! :D

 

 

 

Just finished the subbed...that ending was just perfect... no lines... just those eyes talking... but you can feel the depth of their feelings to one another...! 

 

That epilogue is show and proves how much they knew CSH. One is sooo superficial... one is so intense that he knows what type of mask she will like..! Daebak...!  

 

Kudos to the production staff!!!

WHT???

 

how is he superficial?

Knowing a woman wold like to hide her full face - any tom , richard simmons, harry knows that..

not saying JHK is not observant.. he is.. but his intelligence shows more on another things.. but this full mask is at par if not less.. with hubby's effort of finding out what CSH is wearing and realizing immediately that it wasn't her

Watch it here: https://tv.naver.com/v/4832419

Don't forget to press the heart if you have a naver account. :lol:

 

Edit:

Views reached 506k as of 7:55pm. Hope it will get more than 1m before ep 9 then maybe the director and writer will be nice enough to give us more kissing scenes. Haha

And, now he doesn't know how to let go, which if he truly cares for SH, he has to do.

 

I’m sad for him. Only because he was raised that way. He must be at a total loss not knowing what to do to make CSH fall for him.

 

I remember his story about their honeymoon in spain and they need to drive west. He wanted to hire a driver but CSH wanted to travel without one and he drove for hours. 

 

Thinking about it now, it’s impossible CSH didn’t feel anything when they were married? Driving for hours under extreme heat only because your new wife doesnt want to hire a driver is effort in itself.

 

And, I’m gonna ask this because i think it’s a pretty big elephant in the room, was the marriage never consumated?

I don't think it's realistic to think that the marriage was never consummated. When they were married, WS was attracted to his wife, and SH wanted to be a good wife, even wanting to mold herself into what her husband likes. Plus, children would have been a big part of the expectations from the marriage. I don't see any reason why it would not have been consummated. On the other hand, I am wondering whether for SH, it was always a duty and never a pleasure, now that you've raised the topic.

 

Btw, completely changing the topic, I was thinking during the kiss scene that PBG has really improved since his on screen kisses in MDBC. I remember at the time, he didn't even really kiss her lips when they were kissing, but rather her philtrum, though that may have been somewhat deliberate because of the controversy over KYJ being a minor still. I guess MDBC was his second on screen kiss, and he seems to have improved in this drama from both of his previous kisses. I think that this drama is the first straight up romance drama that he's done as well, though both Reply 1988 and MDBC had some romance in them, they were not really billed as romances.

I have a feeling it was. My take is why go on a honeymoon in the first place, and maybe it’s just me but “brownie points” kind of has a sensual undertone to it. 

 

This may be overanalyzing, forgive me, but even during the kiss scene it was CSH who sort of opens her mouth. Maybe it indicates she has more experience in the love department than JH? IDK if that was the director’s instructions or that’s just how the actors kiss.

 

Just my two cents

He had on screen kisses in Reply 1988 too which were great. 

 

MDBC was understandable and partly why I was never drawn to the romance of the series

That’s what I thought too. Idk, but something irks me that shes acting like she really hadn’t felt anything toward him. I feel like there’s another big secret that happened between them that lead her to dislike him, aside from the divorce. Or maybe the evil MIL (of course) keeps getting in their way while they were married.

 

About the kiss, I noticed that too. And I remember an interview with SSCP before. SJK commented that SHK covers up his short comings in a very subtle way. I have replayed the kiss alot of times and at first PBG’s lips were totally closed. Had SHK did’t open her mouth, that would have been a smack on the lips or closed lip kiss. I couldn’t blame him though. We all know why there is a slight hesitation on his part. I like the way he went aggressice when they changed angles though. Doesn’t matter, PBG still delivered. I especially liked that sound of a smack on the last part. :wub:

@dukesa1122, I could understand that SH never felt anything for WS. I think that SH was so caught up in trying to be the perfect daughter, wife, and daughter-in-law, that everything she did was about duty and not much else. And a large part of it was the mother-in-law who is very critical and controlling, even to telling her what to wear, what activities she has to do, which people she needs to associate herself with. 

 

It’s as SH herself tells her mother, she found herself smiling when she got divorced because she finally thought she might live. I think her married life was an even worse version of her life under her mother where SH did as she was told, no more and no less.

I just completed watching E8. The kissing scene is definitely a nice Christmas gift to us viewers. The kiss although done very lightly serves to cement the love for each other. The relationship is no longer at the "pre-relationship" stage. They are now in the "couple" stage. It looks like more pressure will be thrown their way by MIL but in the end they will survive all the hardship and pain.

 

Since E8 will be the last for this year. I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a far better 2019 to all of us. Stay safe everyone.

Nah...he had kiss scenes in Reply '98 (hotel & car kiss scenes) and they were pretty good.

Yes, you're right. I really loved PBG in R88 as well, but for some reason, I never really think about R88 as a romance. :)

 

@mellinadear, thanks for the reminder as well. Yes, this is PBG's 3rd drama with kisses, but I still think he's gotten better, perhaps he's just smoother here? Though, his hotel kiss in R88 was more passionate. :)
